New user here…
I just started this journey the other day with basic sensors running on a Raspberry PI 3. Zwave/Zigbee dongles on the way.
Anyways, the barrel for DC power on my RPI is flaking out, losing power intermittently, need to replace. Instead of purchasing another RPI, I have a brand new HP T640 Thin Client that was never used by my client. Specs are as follows:
- HP T640 Thin Client
- HP ThinPro
- AMD Ryzen™ R1505G (2.4 GHz base clock, up to 3.3 GHz max boost clock, 4 MB L3 cache, 2 cores)
- 4 GB DDR4-2400 MHz RAM (1 x 4 GB)
I am not a Linux guy at all, I almost qualify as a Windows guy. I did some searching on the web on how to install HA onto a thin client. Not gonna lie, I am more confused now than I was before reading stuff. Right out of the gate, its talking about different images (VirtualBox, KVM, Vmware Workstation). I also cannot find a step by step guide for the silly people like myself.
I am hoping someone could step me through this as opposed to getting an overpriced RPI.
